The Votes Are In...

"SMOKE AND MIRRORS" IS #1!!

If you voted for "Smoke and Mirrors" this past week, thank you so, so incredibly-to-the-moon-and-beyond much! I heard from a few of you that you were voting every day (all ten times a day!), and...

You mean the world to me. 
Your support and encouragement and joyful enthusiasm are true gifts. 
Do you know that?

Thank you.

There are a few reasons I think this whole thing is extra neat. 

First, I have had no control. It has been entirely up to you to help "Smoke and Mirrors" keep playing on The Radio Cafe Top 10 Countdown for the past three weeks. Not only that, but it is thanks to you that it climbed. 

Second, "Smoke and Mirrors" isn't exactly radio friendly with its 5 minute duration and its 30 second cello/instrumental introduction. The fact that this is the song that's reached the top... well, it makes me smile. I've struggled in the past with letting my songs get too long ("Wake Up America" was 8.5 minutes in its first final draft...), and I'm so glad that hasn't counted against "Smoke and Mirrors".

Third, the story behind this song has meant a great deal to me for a very long time. In a lot of ways, this song haunted me into writing it. I'm grateful it has this chance to be heard.

To top this day off, "Wildfire" has now passed a thousand streams on Spotify (the first of my songs to reach that milestone). And again... all thanks to you.

There are times I feel somewhat invisible. Going along and keeping on keeping on in the hopes that we just might be building something beautiful. And then there are other times. Times like these when I see we're already there.

Thank you for supporting this little indie artist from a tiny, apple town.

All the love, 
Brittany

Thank you + Thank you some more

Hello friends!

So last week, over on the Facebooks, you may have seen that "Smoke and Mirrors" was played on The Radio Cafe's Top 10 Countdown--a Los Angeles radio show dedicated to supporting indie music! I... was pretty excited about that. 

To get the song played this week, I needed your help to vote it on, and...
YOU DID IT! You got "Smoke and Mirrors" through to this week's show!!
Last week, it was a bonus song--not even in the actual Top 10, and this week, it was #6! Because of you guys!

"Smoke and Mirrors" was a part of last night's program thanks to you. THANK YOU!
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

...

Should we go for week three?

For "Smoke and Mirrors" to be included in next week's show too, it needs enough votes to send it on! If you have a minute, would you help a song out?
You can vote right here

And if you'd like to listen to the whole show, you can find it on iTunes, Google Play, or Spotify. Just look up "The Radio Cafe Top 10 Countdown w/ Christopher Ewing"--their April 16th show!

"Smoke and Mirrors" plays around 15:45!

On another note but in the same library of THANK YOU's...
I just noticed that "Wildfire" is about to pass 1,000 streams on Spotify! 
You all are truly the best. And my favorites. Thank you.

All the love, 
Brittany

Behind-the-Scenes

Do you like seeing behind-the-scenes as much as I do?
(Raise your hand if you've watched all the Lord of the Rings behind-the-scenes! Also, can we be friends?)

If you do, then here's a story for you!
Come with me behind-the-scenes of the "Wilderness For Heart" Music Video!

"There are many stories I could tell you about the making of this music video.

I could tell you about filming at the train museum…
I will forever live in fear because there is footage in a vault somewhere of me wiping out in those platform shoes while trying (and failing) to be Cinderella as I walked along the train tracks. I didn’t lose a shoe though, so… chalk up a point for me."

Read the rest of the story here!

Thanks for featuring my story, Bruce Trek!
Be sure to check out the other stories they've shared so far!

Go get to know them!

All the love, Brittany

Thanksgiving + Sale

Hello all!

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! Mine was quiet and wonderful, spent with some of the people I love most. Makes for a pretty perfect day.

Hey, I wanted to let you know that right now (almost) everything is on sale over at my store! Albums and mason jars are many percents off! (I know there's something grammatically wrong with that sentence, but in the real world... that's probably how I would have said it...)

If you're looking for a unique gift for someone or even for yourself this Christmas, go check out the store: BJeanMusic.com/store!

I have a few Christmas shows coming up in Chelan, Bonners Ferry, and Twisp--so keep an eye on my schedule if you're interested in those!
(A couple of them haven't been posted just yet!) 
I'd love to see you!

I'm looking forward to this season.
It is, after all... the most wonderful time of the year! 

All the love, Brittany
